Agenda

  • Background

  • BayTAS Overview

  • NEIEN Flow Implementation

  • Conclusions & Lessons Learned


Thursday may 31 2012 martin hurd vladislav royzman tetra tech inc

Background - Clean Water Act


Thursday may 31 2012 martin hurd vladislav royzman tetra tech inc

  • Background - What is a TMDL?

  • Waste Load Allocations for point sources

  • Load Allocations for nonpoint sources

  • Reserve capacity sets aside allocation for future development

  • Margin of Safety allocation accounts for uncertainty


Thursday may 31 2012 martin hurd vladislav royzman tetra tech inc

  • Background - Setting TMDL Milestones and Determining Progress

  • States propose pollution reduction milestones to measure success in their Watershed Implementation Plans (WIPs)

PA 2009 commitment for 2012 milestones


Thursday may 31 2012 martin hurd vladislav royzman tetra tech inc

  • Background - BayTAS

  • What is it?

    • Bay Tracking & Accounting System

    • Released January 28, 2011

  • Why Developed?

    • Required by Executive Order 13508, “Strategy for Protecting and Restoring the Chesapeake Bay Watershed” - May 12 2010

    • CBF Settlement Agreement “Begin” to use the system by Jan 31, 2011

  • What does it Track?

    • TMDL allocations and reserves

    • Tracks facility loads

    • Annual progress and milestones


Thursday may 31 2012 martin hurd vladislav royzman tetra tech inc

  • BayTAS Overview - Tracking

  • Tracks TMDLs for 92 Segments for:

    • State, Basin, Segment, Sector and Facility

    • Includes 5.3.0 and 5.3.2 model version data for delivered and edge of stream

  • Tracks WLAs for NPDES Point Sources and LAs for Non-Point Sources/Sectors

  • Stores TMDL Progress and model runs


Thursday may 31 2012 martin hurd vladislav royzman tetra tech inc

  • BayTAS Overview - Tracking

  • Data tracked for non-significant and significant facilities

  • Details include allocations, DMR data and whether meeting WLA


Thursday may 31 2012 martin hurd vladislav royzman tetra tech inc

  • BayTAS Overview - Reporting

  • GIS data viewer for viewing facility and allocation information

  • Web Services provide data to BayTAS public site on CSTAT

  • Excel / Word Management Report

  • Excel Data Extracts

  • Live Reports for NEIEN submissions


Thursday may 31 2012 martin hurd vladislav royzman tetra tech inc

  • NEIEN BMP Exchange

  • Trading Partner Agreement (CBPO & Jurisdictions) signed in 2004 and $390K grant.

  • Goal to exchange BMP Implementation data by Dec 2010.

  • Best Management Practices (BMPs) are provided by jurisdictions and used as inputs to the suite of Bay Models

  • Results in nonpoint source loadings for given scenario

  • Submission reports are published in BayTAS


Thursday may 31 2012 martin hurd vladislav royzman tetra tech inc

  • NEIEN Flow Implementation

  • Created common exchange of BMP projects for agricultural, stormwater, and urban BMPs.

  • Leveraged the existing production BayTAS application

  • User management, admin functions, automated report publication for stakeholders.

  • Data from the exchange is consumed and processed for input into the Bay Model, using BayTAS/node functions, to determine load reductions and progress

  • NEIEN Flow Implementation – How it really works

  • Rules identify

  • Unit type (& unit conversions)

  • Priority of use

  • Target practice in SB / WSM

  • Conversion factors (mathematical operators & constants)

  • Stored procedure associated with record

  • Scenario Builder input file type

  • Status & Comments


Thursday may 31 2012 martin hurd vladislav royzman tetra tech inc

  • NEIEN Flow Implementation

  • State partners communicate requests to Admin & submit data

  • Admin updates system rules table & kicks off progress run

  • Data converted processed to Scenario Builder & validation reports for state partners


Thursday may 31 2012 martin hurd vladislav royzman tetra tech inc

  • NEIEN Flow Implementation

  • Live Reports – what is in the node database

  • Validation against SB Requirements:

  • Summarized numbers

  • Status – reason why

  • Link to details, individual records for the summary row

  • Diagnostic information for Admin - SP associated with conversion rules.
